we had our hot air balloon experience in the Yarra Valley near Healesville. From the moment we arrived at our departure point to the moment we finished packing the balloon away it was and experience to add to your bucket list. The staff were professional and knowledgeable about the local area and safety was paramount at all times. It would... More

Hi, I bought their offer from group on, and went through all the reviews (specially negative ones) from here. I was too afraid, as I cannot afford to waste $350, being a student. But yet decided to go with them, as it costs much less that what others offered. The tour went very smoothly. I guess they have made some... More

Thank you Go Wild for a wonderful experience!!! This was a suprise trip from my husband as I've always wanted to go hot air ballooning. The staff and everyone involved were just fantastic. We had a wonderful and beautiful chilly morning to start the day plus a nice glass of bubbly. Coz my husband purchased the package, the 5 star... More

what an amazing experience I had. Fantastic service, breathtaking views and to top it off and super yummy breakfast. It was always on my bucket list and so glad I did it with Go Wild Ballooning after being recommended by a friend who had previous had the same experience. My partner and I could not have been any happier.

I Didn't even fly with this company as I couldn't make it past the customer service. Absolutely disgusting, global were way better to deal with!!! I'm sure the pilot and crew are great but the customer service leave a lot to be desired. A lot!! Still have a bitter taste in my mouth.

Go Wild B, Owner at Go Wild Ballooning, responded to this review

Your booking request was denied based on the following: 1. On advice from our Merchant provider to not accept your booking and credit card. 2. Your continued abusive and vulgar language. 3. A potential flight and / or safety risk. It is unfortunate that Go Wild Ballooning had to deny your booking, however, it is of the utmost importance for... More

My friend and I flew with Go Wild last week and what a fantastic experience we had. From the moment we arrived at the meeting point, to launching the balloon, flying over the glorious Yarra Valley and landing in a paddock full of cows, our experience was nothing short of amazing. It ended with a beautiful 5 star breakfast at... More

If I had my choice over, I would NOT book with this company. Their customer service is appalling and they make things up as they go so that everything turns in their favour. They basically called me a liar because they don't understand their own terms and conditions. I tried to reconcile my problems with the company directly, but it... More

Had a great time. It's very cold so I recommend wearing a beanie, warm shoes and coat (our flight was on a sunny day at the end of december). Friendly crew, felt safe. Ready to go back :)

I had a later morning flight owing to light drizzle at the normal crack of dawn starting time. After a simply superb breakfast at Sweetwater Cafe at Chateau Yering, we got aboard the mini-bus and went a short distance to a nearby paddock to roll-out and inflate the balloon. This was an interesting experience I'd not had before and it... More
